Glue Bead Inspection
Use 3D vision to inspect the continuity and volume of applied adhesive or fastening material
Verify the amount of sealant material after it is laid down, as well as the continuity of the sealant bead.
A DS1000 displacement sensor was installed close to the robot that dispenses the sealant material to provide early inspection and detection of defective sealant beads.
Because defective sealant beads were detected early, the manufacturer was able remedy problems quickly before they became a costly mistake. They were able to increase the quality of the parts they produced as well as reduce costs by minimizing the shipping of defective parts.
